    VAR Thoughts?

    Bang on. The "challenge" system is something I thought should have been used right from the start. It would let the game flow more, would stop the VAR officials from being pedantic cunts and would put the responsibility of all decisons down to the pitch officials. If your team think the ref got a major decision wrong, your captain requests for it to be VAR reviewed. And you get to keep the challenge if it is successful. Otherwise, you lose it.
  2. Love Mane but it's been a weird couple of weeks with him and his decision making. On that 2nd disallowed goal, I feel a sharper version of himself would have timed his run before the header. He knew he was ahead of the last man and still went to head it. Yeah, I'm being a nitpicking cunt though. Still love all these lads and the manager. It is testament to their greatness to be top of the league temporarily despite all the numerous injuries and shit VAR decisions.

    Nathaniel Phillips

    Had a decent game today. Was quite dominant in the air. Makes up for his lack of pace by extending his go go gadget legs for interceptions. Obviously doesnt work all the time but still effective mostly. Wont mind seeing him against Wolves, since he can't play in the CL.
  4. In the Champions league, they never measure offside to the tiniest micrometre with VAR. They usually have benefit of doubt decisions go the way of the striker. But the world's bestest league love to do things differently, don't they?
  5. Even Peter Walton on BT said he wont have given a penalty for that Welbeck incident. And that's Peter Walton who bends over backwards to support every decision given on the pitch.
  6. Exactly. Those who are comparing the Welbeck incident to Salah's are plain wrong. Salah was in full control of the ball. Welbeck wasn't. It was more or less a 50/50 and a very dubious penalty to give. Especially when the ref saw it and didn't give it in the first place.
  7. Welbeck wasn't in possession of the ball though. Ref saw it and let it go. It wasnt a clear and obvious error. We have been fucked over too many times this season by VAR. And you're right, that won't have been given to us if it was the other way round.
  8. Shaqiri surely has calf fever again, doesnt he? There wasn't any indication he has regained fitness. Didnt appear in training yesterday.
  9. Alisson Robbo Matip Phillips Milner Fabinho Hendo Minamino Jota Firmino Salah Think it's time to give Minamino a go in the number 8 role since we are short of numbers in midfield. He is a solid grafter and has good technique. Seeing as we cant seem to get the best out of him in the forward positions, let's see how he does in midfield. I reckon he'll be decent there. Curtis, Mane and Gini should be getting a rest for this one.

    Neco Williams

    *Meant to put this here instead of the match thread* Of course, Neco is still young and Trent has set such a high standard, it'll be unfair to expect similar quality from him. He still has time to improve and hopefully does so. The problem at the moment is Neco hasn't showed signs of progress since he got into the team. I reckon a large proportion of the 27 times he lost possession was caused by taking too many touches on the ball in his own half, trying to beat a man. Atlanta definitely did their homework on him based on that. It has been a very noticeable thing. Rather than his teammates being blamed for passing him the ball, the focus should be on the young lad learning to keep it simple at the back. Rhys Williams is an example of a young lad keeping it simple with his passing at the back. 1 or 2 touch maximum, straight to a teammate.

  12. Far too much analysis and whinging based on tonight's result. Klopp gambled. It didn't work. Did I like that he gambled? Not really. Do I understand why he gambled? Yes. We are still in a great position to go through. Yes, it would have been lovely to qualify with 2 games to spare, but we rarely do so in the CL. Onwards to Brighton. That's the more important game.
  13. Need a bit more guile in midfield. Can't seem to get any creativity going through there. Can't just keep hoofing it down the channels hoping to outrun them all the time. Our passing has been a bit sloppy overall. Anytime Neco gets passed the ball, Atlanta close him down very quickly. They know he loves a touch too many and can get the ball pinched off him. Would move Milner to RB. Throw Minamino in as a number 8. And Firmino for Origi.
  14. Hope so. Would be the best position to play him. His best games have come through playing in the middle upfront. Has far too many shite games when playing from the left.

    Liverpool 3 Leicester City 0 (Nov 22 2020)

    That's my main issue with Neco too. He takes far too many touches when he is on the ball in our own half. Often, it's because he feels the need to beat an opponent before passing it. He really should learn to keep things simple in our own half.
  16. Yep, Curtis deserves credit that ball. Has played well overall.
  17. That was a cowardly display by Leicester in the first half. Considering the number of key players we are missing, this was a chance for them to show some intent. And if they do suddenly decide they want to be braver in the 2nd half, we have real pace to hurt them on the counter. Good position we've gotten ourselves in.

    Other football - 2020/21

    And now he gives Man utd a penalty. Fucking cunt.
  19. And David Coote shows his incompetence once again in the Man Utd game tonight, allowing the VAR official convince him a definite penalty wasn't one.
  20. Coote being initially appointed for the Leicester game was an incredibly stupid decision. Hope the reversal of that decision was because we had a gentle word with Mike Riley at the PGMOL. Gentle words like "fuck Coote off and fuck you too, you incompetent cunt".

    Mohamed Salah

    Even if that is correct, then it means he had the virus before the wedding. And it is therefore likely that he infected other people at the wedding. Because we saw the video and pictures of him wearing no mask in a crowded location. Certainly irresponsible behaviour on his part.

    Kirkby Training Complex

    Yeah, it is such a daft thing to do. They could easily have had it the same way the wall was at Melwood. Paint both trophies next to each other and have '19' underneath. Simples.

    Kirkby Training Complex

    Maybe I'm just a fussy cunt about this but it is winding me up. Apparently, they would be going with a Champions Wall in Kirkby which would separately have "18" league titles and "1" Premier League title. I understand if they would like to separate it for display purposes (as seen in the picture). Even at that, just build a bigger podium to sit both trophies on. And label it 19, simple. On a wall, they really should have "19 league titles" the way they had it at Melwood. Doing this now just seems we are giving in to what rival fans were saying. "Oooh, Liverpool have won only one PL trophy. You are same level as Blackburn". Fuck off.

    Mohamed Salah

    Read that City have missed 6 out of their last 10 penalties in the Premier League. So we really can't underestimate the importance of having someone like Salah who consistently sticks them away for us.

    Trent Alexander Arnold

    My first inclination would be to put Gomez, Milner or Hendo at right back. But I also think Neco might be fine there for those games. He just needs to keep things simple. It wasn't working when he was taking too many touches and trying complicated stuff the last few games he started as right back. He should follow the example of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams. Do nothing too fancy. Focus on defending properly.
